Well, this used to be a great hotel for the value, but no more.
Over the past 10 years or so we must've stayed here at least 25-30 times under previous owners, so we thought we knew what to expect. We have always asked for a room on the top floor in the first building as we have found this to be the quietest spot.
Apparently, there are new owners... new owners who haven't a clue.
After we found out our in-room heating didn't work, we were juggled around to several different rooms, each with it's own "issues". (The clerk stated that a relative of the owners' was now the manager and that getting things repaired correctly and in a timely manner was not the manager's strong suit.)
Finally we were in one that seemed ok - until we realized a few hours later that we were surrounded by young college-age men who were drinking like fish and exhibiting nearly every noisy & obnoxious behavior you can imagine.
We looked at each other and agreed:"We're outta here!".
We had booked 4 nights and this was to be our 2nd, so we checked out and got refund on the last 2 nights.
None of this would've happened with the previous owners - everything always worked perfectly, and they even went so far as to "police" the buildings and parking lots regularly to make sure guests were remaining quiet and civil: up-to-and-including kicking people out if necessary.
So, stay away from The Coachman.
